This event has ended.

Los Angeles based artist David Allan Peters’ brilliantly kaleidoscopic works push the boundaries of acrylic paint as well as traditional practices of painting. Using a linocut knife, Peters dives into his works, cutting, sculpting, and carving through finely layered paint to reveal intricate, pulsating color patterns.

From a distance, Peters’ vibrantly variegated works appear flattened but a closer look reveals their carefully crafted, undulating texture and a multitude of varying perspectives. As Phoebe Hoban writes, “Peters meticulously carves away the surface of his vividly colored, tactile paintings to reveal their underlying layers. Ghosts of earlier images don’t gradually emerge: The artist literally cuts open his work so that you can see it, and then see it again. A masterful synthesis of process and product, art and artifact, each piece, like a topographical map, is a textured stratification that artfully tracks its own history.”
